I have a bunch of beef fat that resulted from boiling short ribs - wondering what I can do with it. Should I keep it or throw it out?
Merrill is a co-founder of Food52.
Beef fat is actually great for adding flavor when you use it in small doses. I've added a little to mixed root vegetables before roasting them, and it gives them a rich, earthy taste. Maybe a tablespoon or so for a pan of veg?

To Add some the oil for french fries. The second best roast pitaoes. Best is duck fat. Any recipe that requires the browning of beef - say in a raise.
